Make Your Mark On Governor's Island; An Archicritic's Legacy

New, 2 comments

GOVERNOR'S ISLAND?In between the lawn parties and bike rides on Governor's Island this summer, stop by to scrawl a message on the walls of an out-of-use house and take part in a community-driven public art project: Writing On It All. Over three weekends in June, this former residence for senior officers (a vestige of the time from when GI was used as a military base) will be open to all comers, who can get inspired with prompts like "New York Is..." to make their statements. Read others' comments and write your own while you can?the whole place will be painted over and returned to its original state by the end of June. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

UPPER EAST SIDE?The Museum of the City of New York and the Architectural League of New York are co-hosting a panel next Thursday at 6:30 p.m. on the legacy of the architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable, who just passed away in January. An Architectural Record editor, professors from Columbia and NYU, a principal at Perkins Eastman Architects, and a former chairman of the City Planning Commission will discuss the impact that the first-ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism had on the city's built environment since 1950. Full-price tickets are $12. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
